Vivienne du Toit completed a 4 year design degree and worked in the design industry for 12 years before becoming an exhibiting artist and art teacher in 2002.
For the past 18 years Vivienne has taught art and is particularly passionate about teaching art to children.
"Art is a way for children to break away from the conditioned thinking that there is only one response to a problem. By nurturing artistic development we enable children to dig for unique and individual answers, to think creatively, work collaboratively and learn to trust their own intuition."
"Nothing is wrong in art, that's why art is so important for children"
